- Pick as many questions as you want from here and make a list. Remember to customize the questions to suit the couple
- Start by having the husband exit the playing area so that he is unable to hear the wife’s answers
- Ask the wife a set of questions and have them write their answers
- Bring the husband back in and ask him the same set of questions that you previously asked the wife
- If the answers given by the husband match those given by the wife, the couple gets a point
- Like all games this too should have a reward at the end
Note: When picking questions, keep in mind the audience. While the questions are supposed to be fun and tease the couple a little, it should not hurt their feelings or put them in an awkward situation. Keep the game light-hearted.
